UPDATE - NO TIP: Restaurant Association Wanted Slower Service From Secy of State Re Minimum Wage Petitions; Judge Denied

The Secretary of State's office does not have to take their foot off of the gas when validating petitions to place an initiative raising the minimum wage to $12/hour on the November ballot. Last night, Arizona's Politics reported that the Arizona Restaurant Association had asked for an emergency hearing asking for the slowdown.

The Secretary of State's Office informs us that the Court denied the request for a temporary restraining order.  "We are permitted to process petitions as quickly as we see fit and aren't required to slow down," says Communications Director Matt Roberts.

The initial hearing on the challenge to the minimum wage petitions is set for next Thursday.
